Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you just have to just let go and Believe.
This past Saturday we spent inside Habersham Winery’s tasting room doing a product demo after being cancelled by an outside art festival.
Neither Clark nor I were upset about that cancellation, somehow it just didn’t feel right. But, since we are a new company, we figured the exposure would be good. A good deal of our weekend time is spent at local wineries, not art festivals, but we’re flexible and had nothing to lose.
So when Emily asked if we wanted to set up inside the winery tasting room, it was pretty much a no-brainier.

Emily, Andrew & the entire staff of Habersham Winery are some of the most gracious people we know. They have supported us in so many ways. Oh and did I mention, we love their wines? We have a very good community here in North Georgia Wine country & love living on the Unicoi Wine Trail.
Some of the friendly folks we met the previous Saturday at WineFest came back to Habersham Winery & brought friends visiting from Arizona to do a tasting. We had met several people Friday night at Serenity Cellars, while listening to Monica Spears. They were all staying at Sylvan Valley Lodge. Ginevra & John are bringing their lodge to a new level, with a new event space. I also just saw something about a Mountain Beach Party there May 31.
To top it off, the okra, on top of the jar, so to speak, we had the pleasure of meeting a real-life Athens, GA food celebrity, Angie Tillman of Phickles fame! I know I was probably gushing and too excited, but dang! Angie & Phin have worked so hard to take their business where they have. Their Phickles are super yummy and healthy. Plus, they were just so genuinely nice & shared some advice. Best advice she had?
Just be yourself.
